Five Porsche Macans in Vintage Racing livery debut in Singapore | News


Some cars look better in black, others in white. And a precious few, like the porsche macan, look good in just about anything. As proof, we present this quintet of Porsche Macans being shown in Singapore, each outfitted in bespoke liveries that evoke some of the most illustrious cars in Porsche’s distinguished racing history.

All five looks harken back to Porsche’s wildly successful racing efforts of the 1970s and 1980s, during which the legendary Porsche 917 and 956 race cars were the dominant forces at Le Mans, the Nürburgring and just about every other race circuit. important where they were found. . These include Martini Racing’s silver, red and blue colors; the Rothmans design white on blue; the red Salzburg pattern with its sharp white stripes from nose to tail; the classic orange and light blue Gulf design; and last but not least, an evocative treatment of the unforgettable 1971 Pink Pig 917 race car, complete with butcher-style “cut” lines defining its individual anatomical parts, just like the original.

You may already be screaming this at your screen, but you may have noticed that in both its purpose and proportions, the Porsche Macan is nothing like the 917 and 956 race cars that first wore this iconic look, and one doesn’t have to be too cynical to spot Porsche’s obvious ploy to proliferate the notion that everyone is literally cut from the same cloth. However, in these liveries, and certainly from the driver’s seat, it doesn’t seem all that over the top. No, we didn’t drink Kool-Aid; we just drank Macan’s goodness from behind the wheel on the road and on the track. Suffice to say, if the motorsports community created a racing class for production-spec compact crossovers, the Macan would likely dominate. (Did we really just write that?)

    Each of these unique Macans debuted in a different location in Singapore, each representing “an integral part of Singapore’s history and highlighting the country’s diverse culture and heritage,” according to Porsche. No mention was made of why Singapore was chosen over other places in the world with diverse cultures and heritages of their own, such as Ann Arbor, Michigan, where the car and driver editorial team is based, but unfortunately. Maybe next time, Porsche, you should replay this card with the panamera sport tourism in a few years. . .
